TORRES OUT FOR TIGRES
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
KENYA BROWN - Friday, January 23, 2015
Jose Torres is set to be sidelined several months for Mexican team Tigres after back surgery.

American midfielder Jose Torres will be on the shelf for the next two to three months after undergoing successful surgery for a herniated disk, Liga MX side Tigres UANL reported on Tuesday.

"The prognosis for ‘Gringo' Torres' recuperation is between 10 to 12 weeks. He'll leave hospital in the next few days," the team announced on Monday.

The injury to the 27-year-old kept him out of Tigres' first two games of the Clausura season. Despite going through training, the injury did not improve and the team decided to go ahead with surgery. Doctors also discovered that Torres had damage to his sciatic nerve.

The Texas native has been an indispensable member for Tigres since signing with them in November 2012. He played a part in the team's run to a runner-up place in the 2014 Apertura as he played in all of their playoff games.
